Summary, etc.:
"For 36 years, Jeopardy! has been a TV mainstay. In that time, it has become a deeply entrenched American tradition and the sort of cross-generational touchstone the likes of which are few and far between in modern television -- a show beloved by everyone from Solange Knowles to George Clooney to the Auburn Tigers. This is the book about Jeopardy!: its history and how it comes together how the most successful players use strategy to dominate the man-myth-legend that is host Alex Trebek what life looks like after winning big on Jeopardy! the Saturday Night Live spoofs that time the Clue Crew almost slid off a glacier -- and everything in between. ANSWERS IN THE FORM OF QUESTIONS will delve into the world of the trivia fanatics who spend years training for their chance to compete on Jeopardy!, drilling themselves on Norse mythology and isotopes and rigging homemade buzzers to perfect the art of ringing in. Notable Jeopardy! champs from years past, including Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer, and Buzzy Cohen will appear to explain their strategies: when to hunt for Daily Doubles or bet it all, and what makes a "good" Final Jeopardy wager. And the people who make Jeopardy! happen -- from the writers and producers to the wardrobe assistant responsible for Trebek's collection of 45 suits and 215 ties-will help break down what the show is looking for in aspiring contestants. Readers will be a fly on the wall, following along from the early-morning clue assembly in Jeopardy!'s famous library to the moment producers make the final cuts. Jeopardy! is a beloved institution in a moment of profound transition. America's favorite quiz show, which has deviated very little in all its years on the air, is about to see a great deal of change. ANSWERS IN THE FORM OF QUESTIONS is a moment to celebrate everything that has made the show such an enduring success, from Merv Griffin and Art Fleming to the present, as well as a look at the future and what lies ahead"-- Provided by publisher.
